In the ever-evolving landscape of cloud computing, businesses need innovative solutions to enhance productivity, streamline operations, and reduce costs.
That’s where Cameyo, a Promevo partner and leading provider of cloud-native application delivery, comes in.
Cameyo provides a revolutionary alternative to the cost and complexity of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offering businesses a more secure, scalable, and user-friendly solution known as Virtual App Delivery (VAD).
What Is Cameyo?
Cameyo is a pioneer in the Virtual App Delivery (VAD) space, and Cameyo’s VAD service enables you to securely deliver all of your apps — including Windows, Linux, SaaS, and internal web apps — to any device, all without virtual desktops or VPNs.
Cameyo has deep integrations with ChromeOS, Google Cloud, and Google Workspace to provide a seamless app experience paired with a zero trust security model that protects your people, your network, and your data.
This solution helps organizations eliminate the cost, complexity, and security issues of legacy virtual desktops while protecting against vendor lock-in.
With an emphasis on simplicity, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness, Cameyo ensures that both IT administrators and end-users have a hassle-free experience, while reducing the burden of application delivery and management.
Cameyo & Google Cloud Platform
Traditional VDI solutions replicate the entire operating system with applications, files, and settings delivered from virtual machines hosted in the cloud or on-premises servers. These Virtual Desktops are typically not designed as native cloud services, often resulting in multiple layers of complexity that reduce scalability.
Cameyo's cloud-native architecture, on the other hand, allows businesses to deliver all of their applications to any device, regardless of operating system, directly from the browser.
Simply put, teams can use any device and operating system they want, and they can still access all of their apps either in the browser or as progressive web apps (PWAs) without having to sign into a virtual desktop environment first.
Cameyo currently offers two types of Virtual App Delivery on Google Cloud Platform:
- Fully-Hosted Service: In this model, Cameyo’s fully-hosted service runs on GCP while all infrastructure is expertly managed by the platform. This option offers a hassle-free experience for organizations seeking a turnkey solution without the burden of infrastructure maintenance.
- Self-Hosted Service: For companies desiring greater control and customization, Cameyo can be self-hosted in an existing GCP instance or in an on-premises data center. This option caters to specific security and compliance requirements while benefiting from Cameyo’s cutting-edge technology.
It is also worth noting that Cameyo integrates with Google Cloud’s DNS API and the Google Compute Engine API to ensure optimum performance, high availability, and best-in-class security.
Thanks to these robust capabilities, Cameyo’s Virtual App Delivery solution on Google Cloud Platform eliminates the need for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure altogether, providing companies with more streamlined app deployment, reduced total cost of ownership (TCO), enhanced security, and outstanding end-user experience.
Still not convinced? Let’s take a look at a real-world success story from one of Cameyo’s clients.
Case Study: Village Hotels & Cameyo's VDI on GCP
A compelling example of the Cameyo-GCP partnership in action is showcased through the success story of Village Hotels, a prominent hospitality chain in the UK.
After migrating from Office 365 to Google Workspace and seeing how it transformed their business, Village Hotels also decided to adopt ChromeOS devices.
“We realized that moving to ChromeOS devices would provide us with a more secure, easy-to-manage, and cost-effective device strategy,” explained Dan Morley, Head of IT Infrastructure and Service.
At the time, Village Hotels was using Citrix-based VDI to provide access to applications on their previous devices. However, this solution proved cumbersome to manage, expensive to maintain, and led to suboptimal user experiences.
As a result, Village Hotels decided to embrace the cloud and go all-in on Google — with Cameyo’s support.
By migrating to the cloud-native Cameyo solution on GCP, Village Hotels witnessed significant improvements in application performance, access, and cost savings. The user-friendly interface and simplified management tools streamlined the IT team's efforts, allowing them to focus on core business operations.
“We chose Cameyo over Citrix and Azure Virtual Desktop for one key reason — Citrix and AVD were far too complex, pure and simple. And it’s not just the initial complexity of deployment, it’s also the ongoing management,” said Morely. “We needed something that could be deployed quickly, and something that wouldn’t require tons of resources to manage moving forward. That was Cameyo.”
“It was a breath of fresh air to see how easy it was to deploy apps to ChromeOS via Cameyo, and to see how simple it is to manage long-term,” continued Morley. “With Cameyo, we were able to go all-in with Google and adopt Google Cloud.”
